Fixing Some of the Unhealthy Tropes in Korean Dramas with Because This Life Is Our First

One of the best dramas to come out this season, and I watched it only, only and only for the love I bear for Lee Min Ki, despite having only seen a two-episode cameo from him in Shut Up! Flower Boy Band, as Byung Hee. The man had me in awe by just his cameo [...]

Temperature of Love

This drama was one I picked up because of my love for Kim Jae Wook, despite his continuing second lead status. An added benefit was that I had already seen Seo Hyun Jin in Another Oh Hae Young last year. Jo Boa, who played the female second lead had not exactly left an incredible mark [...]

Jung Yong Hwa’s The Package

First of all: my regular screamy shout-out to my favourite Korean actor. JUNG YONG HWA!!! WHOAH! Okay, so where does one start with this piece. First of all this has to be his BEST, I repeat BEST role after playing Lee Shin in Heartstrings, which was 2011, meaning 6 years passed till he landed with [...]

Where Dreams Define Reality | While You Were Sleeping

Another hit drama comes to an end tonight; While You Were Sleeping, starring Lee Jong Suk and Bae Suzy. The drama is quite unique in terms of genre, because it is a romantic comedy with a mix of thriller and office politics. The way that the drama handled these various strands of story was rather [...]

Operation Theatres and Noona Romances | Hospital Ship

Kang Minhyuk and Ha Jiwon's noona romance just came to an end yesterday, and it was quite a bumpy ride for me. Set in a ship, full of doctors, that travels from island to island, tending to the health of the poor islanders, the story was very methodical as it moved from case to case per week. [...]

Twenty Again.

This has got to be one of the most unique dramas I saw lately, and without a long introduction, I'm going to explain how I liked it right away. The story revolves around a 38 year old, Ha No Ra (played by Choi Ji Woo), who has led an isolated life ever since she got [...]

Lingerie Girls Generation

I feel it a great honour to cover such a brilliant show that just ended tonight. I have so much to say about it, despite the fact that this was a short series of only 8 episodes. So without further ado, I shall jump right into it. Set in 1979 in an all-girls school in [...]

Playing God in Voice 18+

I just finished the craziest Korean drama I have ever seen, and I felt very out of place in this murderous abyss of Voice after being a severe romantic comedy addict. Though it will be tough to forget all the graphic images that this villainous show displayed, I will go on to commend the show. [...]

When the Proletariat Takes on the Bourgeoisie in Strongest Deliveryman

One phenomenally well-written and well-acted drama just ended. Strongest Deliveryman reached out to the little socialist within me that wishes for equal opportunities for the rich and the poor in any society. With a story based on the struggles of the youth that makes up the lowest rungs of the economic class, it dealt with [...]
